Exploring the skin's adaptive capacities with Juuke Schoorl
Most of Juuke's work is based on a hands-on principle, as she likes to highlight small things other people don’t even notice or have stopped noticing. She says about her art:
“The challenge for me as an artist is to translate the things around us that we take for granted into something visually new and exciting”
At first sight, one is wondering what “malfunction” the skin has, only to realize later on it is no malfunction. As our digital world give us the possibilities to “enhance” our bodies, by photo shopping our flaws away, she hopes to “challenge people’s perspectives to emphasize the beauty that’s all around us”.
